Holika Holika Petit BB Cream Review


Until recently I didn't know about Holika Holika brand, but then some readers told me to review other Korean beauty products, such as Holika Holika. And one of the requests is the Petit BB Cream from this cute brand. I then received this from my sponsor, RieButik, as a review purpose.  I thought there was 4 types only, but as I googled, turned out there are 5 types in fact. But I hope this review would be helpful if you're interested to try either one of them ^.^






Packaging : 

Holika Holika Petit BB Cream comes in plastic squeeze packaging with bright colored design, and each color represents each type, therefore it's easy to differentiate which color is for which needs. The petit name is not just a name, because it's petit enough to bring for traveling as it's only 30ml, about half size from normal bb cream, but it's much enough for your months supply! Most of the times, I cannot finish my BB Cream because it's just too much for myself, so owning a petit one can be a really good thing, because there won't be leftover product hopefully lol


Application : 

The texture of this BB Cream is different each other, but I love using my hands to apply this in the morning because I usually am in a rush to my campus lol Basically I squeeze some amount, and then rub it between my fingers and pat in on my entire face, not forget my neck as well


So now let's review them one by one! :D




Holika Holika Clearing Petit BB Cream contains extracts of tea tree oil and oil absorbent powder that helps clear your skin of blemishes. Making you feel more comfortable and confident. Tea tree oil is effective against nail fungus, ringworm, athlete's foot, dandruff, acne, blackheads and many types of infestations/infections. "Tea Tree" yields an essential oil that is recognized as one of nature's most effective and versatile healers. Oil absorbent powders make this product perfect for those with oily skin.

Benefits: Improves Troubled skin | Oil control | UV protections | Clears Skin 


I would say that this BB Cream is quite good in oil control. The texture is a little bit watery, and easy to blend. But it has pink undertone that doesn't match my skin tone :x I love wearing this because it's so light weight and helps reducing my new acne. It contains SPF 30 PA++



Holika Holika Watery Petit BB Cream contains green tea that can naturally rehydrate your skin giving you a crystal clear look. The Green tea property is an effective way to control acne and helps soothe irritated skin. Green Tea also contains brightening properties that improves the overall appearance of skin complexion.

Benefits: Hydrates | Brightens | SPF | Soothes Skin | Moisturizes | Helps Control Acne


As it sounds, this one is really really watery and really easy to spread on face. When my skin is super dehydrated, I use this BB Cream to help improving my skin texture. It glides really easy and has cool sensation that soothes my skin really nice :D Moreover, it has yellow undertone that matches my skin tone perfectly! It has the lowest SPF Among all of them though, only SPF25 PA++



Holika Holika Essential Petit BB is a multi-functional BB cream. Rich in nutrients and has great coverage and is long-lasting. Caviar and collagen ingredients help to improve fine lines and wrinkles by increases the production of collagen. Caviar penetrates deep into the skin which keeps your skin hydrated longer. It also improves skin elasticity and helps firms. Collagen helps to smooth scars, stretch marks and scalded skin and also helps and delays the ageing process.

Benefits: Hydrates | Improves elasticity | firms | smoothes | Anti-Aging | SPF


It has yellow undertone like the watery version, but it has slightly thicker texture, which makes it helps covering imperfection much better. It is in my opinion has the best coverage among all of them. Unfortunately I find that the oil control isn't that good. It has SPF 30 PA++ like the clearing version



Holika Holika Shimmering Petit BB Cream was designed for those with darker skin tones. This BB cream contains pearl powder crystals that makes your skin shimmer. Adds radiance to your skin and gives it a natural all over glow. Also, has brightening properties to it help brighten your skin tone.

Benefits:  Radiates | Brightens | SPF | Slight Shimmer | Perfect for Darker Toned Skin

This one is really sheer but has the highest SPF, which is SP 45 PA +++, which makes it perfect for everyday use. But I dont really like it because it has a little shimmer and it kinda makes my oily face more oily than before :x It also has pink undertone that doesn't match my skin tone


Swatch :

left to right : Clearing[pink] - Watery[green] - Essential[yellow] - Brightening[pink]


Result : 
These BB Creams have different finishes and purposes, but overall I'd say that their Petit BB Cream has light-medium coverage, and most of them are easy to blend and glides on smooth. I don't face any issue when I am using them. But I think that you should find one that fulfill your needs among them

I love the watery one the most because it suits my skin tone, and it helps my current condition, dehydrated skin, as well as helps soothing out my acne. But as your own skin is different than me, you may have other favorite!


Where I Got This and Price : 

I got this from Riebutik and they sell only for Rp 68.000 [7USD] each! Super cheap right!!! o.O I think it's the cheapest BB Cream I've ever known so far. I would recommend it for those who would like to get inexpensive BB Cream, especially beginner to begin with. It wont hurt your pocket, and it's quality is not bad either. I don't think it's the best, but the price is unbeatable. So you can use it everyday and repurchase it again later without feeling agitated lol



Final Opinion :

Pros : 
  • CHEAP! 
  • Comes in bright colored cute squeeze packaging
  • Has a few types to suit your own skin needs
  • Light - Medium coverage [Only Essential has medium though]
  • Gives natural dewy finish
  • Easy to spread on
  • Contains yellow undertone and pink undertone

Cons : 
  • There's no sign/label to tell which BB Cream has which under tone
I think one of the major points from this BB Cream is that it has both yellow and pink undertone. Mostly BB Creams have pink undertone to suit Korean market, but as BB Cream has been expanded to worldwide, it has to fulfill other race's skin as well. 

But I hope they would let us know which has yellow undertone and pink undertone to begin with. Because even for me, on the first time, thought that the undertone would be same.. But in fact it's different

Lucky enough that I have a few to do comparison so I know which has yellow undertone and which one has pink undertone. So before you purchase this, and interested to get one, make sure it has same undertone as your skin to make it look more natural ^.^




See you guys on my next post!  photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png

melissa said...

love your review!! after reading this i think i'm pretty set on getting one, but i can't decide between clearing or watery. i like the acne control of both, the oil control of clearing, the soothing of irritated skin of watery. i have somewhat oily skin in hot weather, but in cold weather i get really bad dryness (my face gets really tight and the flaking becomes itchy and painful). another point of contention is the undertone. i can't tell if i have pink or yellow undertone (the vein test fails. i see both blue and green -_-;;). any advice?

melissa said...

btw do you think it would be wise to mix them together? LOL i read one review that said she mixed her bb cream with moisturizer. is that ok?

melissa said...

i'm from the philippines by the way, so we mostly have warm weather. also, what are your thoughts on mixing bb cream together and/or with moisturizer? i've read a blog review (not sure if for holika holika or tonymoly cutie beauty bb cream) in which the blogger mixed the bb cream with her moisturizer, do you think it's a good idea or should they be used separately?

Stella Lee said...

belilah.. kan murah :)

Hi, Stella. Thanks for the review. I am interested with this BB cream Holika Holika. But, I wanna know which tube that has a clearing pink? And is it suit for my oily skin? Thanks for the reply. GBU.

Sylwia Keller said...

Hi, thanks for the wonderful review! I'm a little bit confused though... you're saying that Clearing BB Cream has a pink undertone, while so many people tell me it's yellow. I'm a pink toned lady and I hope this one won't be too yellow on my skin ;/

Thanks so much for this review. You covered everything I wanted to know about each product. I currently have the Holika Holika Essential Petit BB, but after reading this review, I think the Holika Holika Clearing Petit BB Cream would be much better for me.

Heyy great review! I wish I read your post before buying the Clearing Petit BB cream coz I have yellow undertone too (probably similar shade as well), and that BB cream is really too pink for me t_t Will definitely check out your reviews before buying other base products in the future!
